This concert was recorded live on May 1st, 2004 at the Palau de la Música Catalana. During the XV Barcelona Guitar Festival and in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of “Orquestra de Guitars de Barcelona” (Guitar Orchestra of Barcelona).

The first of part of the concert was performed by the orchestra formation as it was at the time of the event. The soloist who appear in the second part are musicians who regularly perform with us, and the final section of the program features the entertaining collaboration of some old members of the orchestra, who happily joined in the celebration. This is how we were able to form an orchestra made up 50 guitars.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has offered heir enthusiasm and work over the years to make this project, which began bak in 1989, a relaity.

Este concierto se grabó en directo el 1º de Mayo del 2004 en el Palau de la Música Catalana, dentro del marco del XV Festival de Guitarra de Barcelona, y en conmemoración del 15º aniversario de la “Orquestra de Guitars de Barcelona”.

La primera parte del concierto fue interpretada por la formación de la orquesta que en ese momento estaba activa. En la segunda parte intervinieron solistas que habitualmente han actuado con nosotros, y en la sección final del programa contamos con la entrañable colaboración de antiguos miembros de la orquesta, que se sumaron con entusiasmo a nuestra celebración. De esa manera llegamos a formar una orquesta compuesta por 50 guitarras.

Quiero aprovechar la ocasión para agradecer a todas las personas que a lo largo de todos estos años han ofrecido su ilusión y su trabajo para convertir en realidad un proyecto que se inició en 1989.
